Disabled Access

CONTACT DETAILS: If you have any questions about access and facilities at the festival, please feel free to email us at team@merakifestival.com

If you are a disabled customer and require full-time assistance at the festival, a free Personal Assistant Ticket will be provided free of charge.

Please note there must be one Full Paying adult in a booking for a carer ticket to be issued.

Please note: If you are bringing a disabled child or teen under the age of 18 that requires our access facilities, there must be at least one full paying guardian or adult for a free carer ticket.

You can use the Disabled Access Toilets and Disabled Access Camping area regardless of the age of the disabled customer.

Please buy your paying tickets and send a copy of one of the following documents with your ticket to questions@merakifestival.com and we will send you your free carers pass.

PLEASE NOTE: Accessible facilities are only available for persons with permanent disabilities.

If you are unable to provide evidence of disability, you will not be entitled to a free ticket for a personal assistant. Once all documentation has been received and processed, you will receive confirmation by email.

VIEWING AREAS/PLATFORMS
There will be viewing areas (not raised) marked out to enable viewing of the stages – these are most relevant for use by wheelchair users and those unable to stand for long periods. These customers will be given priority in accessing the viewing areas and seating will be provided on a first-come-first-served basis. Please check with the Information Tent for any changes to viewing platforms/areas during the festival. Accessible toilet(s) will be located close by.

Your personal assistant or a family member/friend will also have a pass for access to the viewing area when accompanying you.
